TMJ Treatment

Headache relief at last! Many people who experience frequent headaches, jaw pain, and neck and shoulder pain do not realize this could be a dental related problem. If you have poor occlusion (bite) your jaw muscles are working overtime to compensate for this misalignment. This leads to discomfort.

By correcting your bite, the TMD symptoms you are experiencing will be relieved.
